The 28-year-old joined the Hammers from Slavia Prague for £5 million on Thursday (Sky Sports).

And it already looks like he will be an instant hit at the London Stadium. The right-back instantly endeared himself to the West Ham faithful by making a very solid challenge on Leicester’s Jamie Vardy.

Coufal looks to be very strong defensively. He is similar to Pablo Zabaleta in a lot of ways , but has more pace than the Argentine.

The Czech Republic international certainly looks like he is more than ready to face the physical challenge that the Premier League brings.

And for just £5 million, Coufal seems to be an absolute bargain. We have to be thankful for Tomas Soucek recommending his former teammate.

Let’s hope that the 28-year-old makes a big difference for us this season. The early signs are very good.

And some West Ham fans absolutely raved about the Czech ace after his debut against the Foxes today…
